Extraordinary generation in Tokyo

Luis Fernando Tena was the manager that led the Mexico Olympic team to win the gold medal in London 2012. The Mexican head coach was interviewed by Fox Sports and he believes that this generation has everything to succeed in the Tokyo Olympic games this summer.

Guillermo Ochoa is an outstanding goalkeeper, he is a great leader with a lot of experience and he has played two World Cups. Luis Romo has been a brilliant midfielder that helped Cruz Azul win the Liga MX title last tournament and Henry Martín is a killer inside the box.

This generation is extraordinary and they have a lot of good talented players, like Alexis Vega from Chivas. Everyone of them play in the best teams in the Liga MX,” added Tena.
